The Highwayman - Loreena McKennitt (1997)
Alfred Noyes' immortal lyric poem "The Highwayman" was re-invigorated on a triple platinum platter in 1997 by Canadian mystic folkie Loreena McKennitt. It's already haunting narrative is married to a perfect musical partner here. Loreena is one of those artists that I get excited to search for at record stores because I know that whichever album I pick up from her catalog is going to be an esoteric aural journey into the ether.
